. i'm happy to say that the president obama, secretary clinton a, a very, very appreciated. the u.s. government, by no means , supports anything like this. and it is for that reason that we do not see a reaction in the first week. but there will be forces still uses of attendees to get their own design. again, you need to trust us. in declaring it a holiday we think we were able to manage it better than if it had not been declared a holiday. the children, office would have all been the open. would have had more of the charity to cover gate. the type of security measures that the government was able to take by putting in strong, you know, diplomatic missions, we have been able to protect, and that is our responsibility to do so. so, again, allowing us the privilege of knowing how to deal with the situation as it arises. but what is important is that we don't misinterpret. this is one person. this is against what he did. exactly what he said. the united states government response, very good. the united states government about the president thomas secretary clinton, senator perry, as
obama gets reelected and you have a reblican congress i think there is a decent chance we'll get fundamental tax reform. i would add that onto the list of john's things. does that, do we ultimately get to a consumption tax? i, i'm an economist so i can certainly make the argument why we're there. i don't think that is part of the debate now. we're a fair way away from that but we'll see. i do think, one of the risks, which i think people are sort of discounting is the notion that for essentially bargaining and strategic reasons we will go off the fiscal cliff in sense that the advantage of doing that then the tax rates reset to where they were at the beginning of the bush administration. then you could have a different debate which is a debate about let's do a big tax reform that includes cutting taxes for most people. and that is a more attractive debate for both sides to have than the current one. and so, and, you know, there is a lot of work being done, what's the economic consequences of going off the cliff. a lot depend whether or not you think it is permanent or temporary.
